This season, there are plenty of new plays — and plenty of re-imagined classics. Our critics take a look at what to see now.
Twelfth Night, a comedy by Shakespeare about a princess who goes from mournful to boy crazy, done really old-school, is a favorite. As is The Jacksonian, a new play about an ugly divorce that features Ed Harris and takes place in a motel in Jackson, Miss. And both our critics are looking forward to Macbeth at Lincoln Center.
New York Daily News theater critic Joe Dziemianowicz and Jennifer Vanasco, a theater critic and an editor in WNYC's newsroom, offer this list of the best things to see.
The Jacksonian - By Beth Henley, directed by Robert Falls, at the Acorn Theatre through Dec. 22.
Regular Singing - Written and Directed by Richard Nelson, at The Public Theater through Dec. 15
Twelfth Night - Written by William Shakespeare, directed by Tim Carroll, at the Belasco Theatre.
Souvenir - Written and performed by Bush Moukarzel, directed by Ben Kidd. At Abrons Arts Center through November 23rd.
They are both looking forward to:
Macbeth - Written by William Shakespeare, directed by Jack O’Brien, at Lincoln Center Theater.
